For six years she has been shocking audiences across America as they prepare to ring in the new year. But this year, Kathy Griffin really surpassed herself during CNN´s live New Year´s Eve broadcast when she simulated oral sex on co-host Anderson Cooper as well as making jokes about his ´sack´.Even when Cooper had to take a minute from the upbeat, lighthearted show for some serious news on the fiscal cliff negotiations in Washington, Griffin told him it should be called ´the fisting cliff´.Viewers continued to be shocked and appalled
Any celeb who depends on shock value to stay relevant has no talent. Madonna comes to mind. Kathy Griffin belongs in that group as well. Besides her shock schlock is the fact she´s a fave of the gay crowd. I´ve met many decent gay people, though, and I hope they´ve had enough of her.
The irony of this vulgar CNN show is that the openly gay Anderson Cooper was the first to apply the "tea bagger" homosexual slur to millions of patriotic Americans, but was upset by Griffith´s attempted on-air tea bagging of him.
Perhaps Fox should pair Anderson with Griffith on her new TV show, but as a remake of the Odd Couple.
Don´t watch them anymore ever, so I do appreciate the reports on this stuff and the guy who replaced Larry King. They knew exactly what they were getting when they hired her so I promise you nobody at CNN was stunned. If they were they´re stupid.
If Cooper was a "real man" he would have her arrested for sexual assault. That is after he knocked her head off. Just an opinion of mine BUT I have never seen a woman "comedian" who is funny. Lots of men "comedians" are not funny either BUT I do remember some funny men. Lucy was not funny either.
Stuff like this that damages our childrens minds. Makes me wonder how come congress will want to ban guns that kill but wont ban this sort of behavior that kills our childrens minds once they view it mistakingly. No more CNN for me...this takes the cake.
Griffin is the female version of Andy Dick. Only someone with psychological problems would do something so stupid. Insulting the entire country, especially with children watching, is never a good idea. Perhaps this is one reason, among many others, as to why CNN`s ratings are `below the belt`.
Anyone who is ´stunned´ by anything on CNN, hasn´t been paying attention since the moment CNN decided that thousands of Iraqis being tortured, raped and murdered, was less important than CNN keeping an office close to Sadamn and Sons. CNN is the face of Ted Turner´s twisted mind and this kind of behavior is normal for them. Sheeple who think they are actually getting unfiltered facts about what is happening in the world, deserve this. The level of media culture has dropped to the point that Griffin is actually considered an ´entertainer,´ by many viewers.
I am so disgusted that this kind of junk is allowed on TV these days. In the old days, they had standards. Okay, so it was a little silly that married couples had to have separate twin beds and couldn´t say the word "pregnant". But I would take those silly standards any day over the "anything goes" mentality we have now. Sickening. It was incrementalism...oh, a little this is okay...a little that is okay... now, anything is okay--no matter how disgusting, crude and repulsive. Oh, but don´t you dare make a cute ethnic joke as you may offend somebody who has no sense of humor!! ugh...
This Christmas Santa gave me a collection of the old Carol Burnett shows from the 70´s. What a difference between then and now. There is some double meaning stuff, but nothing that children couldn´t watch. Very funny!
Well, what in the world did anyone expect? The lewdness, lies and disgusting behavior of just about everyone in front of the cameras at CNN should tell you the kind of audience which watches that view of insanity.
Write Bravo & tell them Kathy is using gays to self promote. They gave her a show last year & I wrote to say I would never watch... then they renewed her for a new season. Her guests are mostly friends & even they are disgusted. In the promo, she spreads her legs like the pig she is.
I have nothing but pity for Kathy Griffin and her hapless viewers. But Anderson Cooper´s stock has gone up in my book since I saw him on a list of celebrity Republicans today - even if people will say he isn´t really a Republican. Of course.. they inexplicably listed Bill Maher, too, so - not much of a list, eh? Still, he isn´t nearly as bad as most of his cohorts.
I am surprised that there aren´t more people on Ldot that are totally outraged by this. CNN has sponsors, I believe there are decency standards set by the FCC.."I´m not surprised" just doesn´t cut it with me. UGH. Boycott the sponsors!
Filthy Godless liberal morons permeate our entertainment industry, as well as academia and the media...Who do you think voted for that Godless Kenyan foreign exchange student? Who do you think makes up the vast majority of the DemocRAT party? Who do you think are called "progressives" or "liberals"? THEM!
Ask Ted Turner if he´s proud, he´ll probably say yes! Morons! Half of our country needs to burn in hell, seriously burn in hell.
I think Kathy Griffin´s popularity is over-hyped by the Daily Mail because the Daily Mail trades in almost the same type of tacky behavior as what she does. Also, how can one take a newspaper seriously if it sells the things it decries?
It was a cheap stunt by a mind-stunted Comedian.... But she is in good company, as CNN is perpetually on its knees in front of the Democrat Regime of BHO... She was just proclaiming the obvious to the community of presstitutes.
Kathy Griffin has zero talent. As such, she tried her make her dollar the only way she could think of. Nothing funny or talented about that her. As for Anderson Cooper, he should ask for an apology or else go get a job in porn. Worthless trash, the lot of them.
Despite my evangelical faith and political affiliation, I´ve always gotten a kick from Ms. Griffith. She has been my guilt pleasure until last night. Simulating an act of sodomy on a homosexual is tasteless, vulgar and a sin. I pray for her Godless soul. May she be stoned to death with vagasil rhinestones !
Kathy Griffin is a no talent pig, who should reserve her behavior for a pornographic nightclub. Her behavior on national television network was appalling and anyone who has her on their show again deserves to be boycotted.
From a distance of three and a half years, the events of March 23, 2010, the day President Obama signed the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act into law, seem like something from another world.On that day, the Democrats who gathered in the East Room of the White House for the signing ceremony could barely contain their joy. They cheered, they laughed, they shouted, they pumped their fists, they wouldn´t sit down. They chanted "Fired up -- ready to go!" as they had at Obama campaign rallies. When the president recognized Nancy Pelosi, then speaker of the House, the chant
On his way to the podium at the memorial ceremony for former South African president Nelson Mandela, President Obama walked down the line of dignitaries, greeting other leaders there to pay their respects. Among the hands shaken: that of Cuban leader Raul Castro. Obama neither made a special effort to shake Castro’s hand nor to avoid him. A snub might have been awkward: In his speech, Obama praised Mandela’s “greatest gift” as “his recognition that we are all bound together in ways that can be invisible to the eye; that there is a oneness to humanity; that we achieve ourselves by
pending on credit card accounts used by staff in Nigella Lawson and Charles Saatchi´s household was not scrutinised for several years, Saatchi´s accountant has told the fraud trial of the couples´ former assistants, Francesca and Elisabetta Grillo.The statements of cards issued by Coutts bank to the Grillos and three other assistants – together known as "Team Cupcake" – were not checked before the bills were settled by Saatchi on direct debit. The court previously heard claims the bills on the cards that were issued for household spending, rose as high as £100,000 per month. The Grillo sisters are accused of fraudulently
Newspapers, including this one, are among the last places in America that has close to zero tolerance for [expletive deleted].I could give you a hint about what word is between the brackets, but I´d best not for fear of arousing the ire of the editing Comstocks. About twice a year, I quote a profanity from a public figure, using just the first letter of the word and then some bowdlerizing asterisks for the rest. No dice, my editor tells me. This is a family newspaper.There was a time when such standards were the norm at major media institutions in America.
A growing clutch of lawmakers from both sides of the aisle is publicly countering the Obama administration’s portrayal of al Qaeda as an organization on the run, saying that an evolving network of the terrorist group’s affiliates now may pose as grave a threat to the U.S. as its predecessor did a decade ago. While some have outright accused President Obama of pushing a “false narrative” to protect his reputation as the man who got Osama bin Laden, others focus on fears that a new breed of decentralized al Qaeda-style groups may control more safe haven territories in the Middle East
"I will be pleased to have you visit," read the email that landed in my inbox this spring. It was signed, " Bernard Madoff. "That exchange led to a two-hour meeting in May with the most notorious fraudster on Wall Street, during which Mr. Madoff pointed fingers at others and said his decadeslong Ponzi scheme wasn´t really his fault. He was dismissive of regulators and whistleblowers, calling Harry Markopolos —a fraud investigator who warned the Securities and Exchange Commission about Mr. Madoff—an "idiot." The federal prison in Butner, N.C., looks more like a small college campus than a penitentiary.
LONDON — Scores of flights were delayed or canceled at Britain´s busiest airports Saturday because of a technical problem at a main air traffic control center. National Air Traffic Service, which controls the crowded airspace over England, said it was having a problem switching between nighttime and busier daytime operations at its control center in Swanwick, southern England. Spokeswoman Juliet Kennedy said the glitch was preventing staff opening new control positions to deal with busier daytime traffic, meaning the service was struggling to handle the volume of flights. "At the moment we don´t know when we will be able to
A veteran Washington adviser who has worked for four Presidents on both sides of the political aisle said that the stunning Government Accountability Report report that found President Barack Obama has not had a one-on-one meeting with Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius since the passage of Obamacare over three years ago is an indictment of the entire White House operation and shows that the Obama administration has bordered on "malfeasance." "I have no doubt the White House is right, that Secretary Sebelius was in several group meetings with the president about health care," Gergen caveated, "but the whole
President Barack Obama’s Facebook page on Saturday posted a message honoring the dead from Pearl Harbor—accompanied by a picture of Obama descending the stairs next to the Pearl Harbor Memorial. The picture barely fits the name of the Arizona Memorial so it can frame Obama in the foreground. The post´s statement reads: Today, with solemn pride and reverence, let us remember those who fought and died at Pearl Harbor, acknowledge everyone who carried their legacy forward, and reaffirm our commitment to upholding the ideals for which they served. President Obama The Obama Administration´s current shipbuilding plan shrinks the size of
Dr. Ezekiel Emanuel, the hapless, goalpost-shifting so-called "architect" of Obamacare, told Fox News´ Chris Wallace on Fox News Sunday that President Barack Obama´s promise "if you like your doctor, you can keep your doctor" was absolutely true--with one important caveat: if you like your doctor, "you can pay for it." Wallace grilled Dr. Emanuel, challenging his false claims that California´s enrollment was keeping pace with the percentage of the young population necessary to keep the system afloat, and pointing out that the president´s promise on doctors would collapse once people lost their insurance or their
Just how much do many Hollywood liberals hate conservatives? In an interview with Playboy, Ben Affleck said, "When I watch a guy [on film] I know is a big Republican, part of me thinks, I probably wouldn’t like this person if I met him": PLAYBOY: You developed a political profile campaigning for presidential candidates Al Gore, John Kerry and Barack Obama. How did that come about? AFFLECK: I grew up in a house with a mother who was a teacher and a Freedom Rider—very left-wing Democrats living in a heterogeneous working-class neighborhood. I picked up a lot of those values there, and I
The U.S. isn´t called "America the Beautiful" for nothing. Each year, millions of tourists come from home and abroad to see the country´s majestic landscape and iconic sites, from the Grand Canyon to the Statue of Liberty. But there are also cool, quirky attractions, like Vermont´s Ben & Jerry´s Factory and Tennessee´s Graceland, the former home of Rock and Roll King Elvis Presley. From California to New York and everywhere in between, the country is chock-full of incredible attractions that keep luring in visitors. Here are the best tourist attractions in every state.
MSNBC host Melissa Harris-Perry opened her program over the weekend with a commentary about the Affordable Care Act’s colloquial moniker: “Obamacare.” She said that the word was originally created as a “derogatory term,” designed by white men as a way to delegitimize President Barack Obama and his achievement. However, she said that the term will soon be synonymous with all of Obama’s accomplishments and she urged her audience to use the term with pride. “I want to talk today about a controversial word. It’s a word that has been with us for years, and like it or not, it’s indelibly
Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu made a last minute decision not to participate in a memorial service for the late South African President Nelson Mandela, despite having notified the South African government that he would attend the event. The decision was made in light of the high transportation costs resulting from the short notice of the trip and the security required for the prime minister in Johannesburg. The Prime Minister’s Office found that the trip would have cost roughly 7 million shekels ($2.4 million) – 2.8 million shekels for chartering a private El Al plane and a further 3.2 million shekels for
